Aquatic Tanks Reprocessing
In aquatic animal facilities, the use of an automated cleaning system for the removal of algae and biofilm from tanks, lids, and breeding tanks is essential and requires a perfect mix of pressure, coverage, and specific chemical detergent. Therefore, all our cabinet and rack washers can be equipped with a specific kit for the reprocessing of aquatic tanks used in research facilities. The aquatic package includes: three chemical dosage pumps needed to feed the unit with the unique combination of chemicals for the washing solution and the neutralization solution before the final rinse phase; flow meters to monitor the number of chemicals used for the different stages of the cycle and a conductivity probe to measure the conductivity of the rinse water to avoid residual left on the tank after the final rinse.
